Permit Application and Process


A permit application is a document required for work regarding trees and landscaping. 

Tree Permit Application forms are available online or obtained at City Hall during regular business hours.

Online Application Submission

Tree Permit applications can be submitted online via e-TRAKiT. In order to take advantage of filling an online application, you will need to create an account through e-TRAKiT. If you need assistance, reach out to the Planning staff at 305-809-3725, and they can help you with this process.

In-Person Submission 

Completed Tree Application forms may be submitted in person to City Hall during regular business hours of 8 am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday. 

Applications for tree removal for the Tree Commission to review on their agenda must be received by 3 pm on the deadline submittal date. 

Available here is the list of 2021 Tree Commission meeting dates and submittal deadlines.

There are two ways to check on the status; online via e-TRAKiT or in person at City Hall.
